Yes, my father is. Actually this hobby gives him earnings for living. He have made many things: door handles, legs for furniture (from sofas to tables), balusters, even drum sticks. What was surprising for me is little balusters for little balconies on shelves. Oh those wishes of rich people. Once he wanted to make chess sets, made several chessmen, and abandoned the idea, when got to know how low a chess set prices are these days. Although I find that process very interesting.
